Madison The fight in the state legislature about labor union expenditures for politi- cal campaign purposes took a new turn today with a pro- posal by an industrial area representative to permit cor- porations to contribute funds for political campaigns also. Sen. W. A. Draheim of Nee- nah, Republican, offered an amendment in the state sen- ate to the assembly-approved bill which would repeal the Catlin law prohibiting the use of union dues money in elec- tion campaigns. Legalize Funds He would legalize the use of corporation as well as la- bor organization funds for! such purposes. Corporations' and cooperatives have been1 legally forbidden to use their! stockholder's money for po-j litical purposes for the lasti half century. The CaUin law! imposing the same rule for, labor organizations was, adopted four years ago. "If it is good for labor un-1 Set To Broadcast This Evening Washington Sec. of State Christian A. Herter plans a major bid for pub- lic support and understand- ing tonight on the eve of his trip to the east-west Ge- neva conference on Ger- many. Reports on preliminary drafts of a speech the sec- retary will deliver over major radio and television networks at 8 o'clock CDT indicate he will not spring any big surprises in Amer- ican policy. Herter is expected to stress what he regards as the reasonableness of U.S. plans for a peaceful solu- tion to the German crisis. He is prepared to say that the proposals to be pre- sented to the Soviets at the foreign ministers parley starting Monday will pro- vide a sound framework if the reds sincerely want to negotiate. At the same time, he is ready to renew assurances that ihe allies will not aban- don West Berlin to the com- munists just because Mos- cow demands that the west- ern powers get out.

(m A large industrial building being erected by of workers collapsed with an ear-shatter- ing roar shortly before 11 a.m. today. At least one man was killed, a number injured and an estimated 20 trapped In wreckage. Hundreds of rescue workers rushed to the scene and tore at the mounds of twisted steel girders and splintered plank- ing with bare hands in an ef- fort to free trapped laborers. For a time shrieks and cries arose from the heap of rubble, lying on the floor of the one- story building. Giant cranes also were sped to the sile to hoist heavier segments and permit rescue teams to crawl underneath. Ambulances roared away at frequent intervals with injur- ed. Eight or more were known to be in hospitals. The building was under con- struction at the Westbury In- dustrial park about 30 miles cast of New York City on Long Island. The steel frame- work had been erected and roofing and brick finishing work were under way. The structure, 200 feel long and 150 feet wide, was to house an electronics firm. Girder Gives Way A steel girder in the roof was believed to have given causing the avalanche of steel and wood to cascade downward. As many as 100 workmen were believed to have been on the job, some on the roof. When the crash came with little or no warning, there was a wild scramble for life. Some escaped.
